Mission: The National Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics (NICPB) is a research institution under public law where the main task of the scientists is research that values academic freedom. The NICPB carries out fundamental and applied research and engages in the development of the novel directions in material sciences, gene technology and biotechnology, environmental technology and informatics. The NICPB helps to educate new generations of scientists pursuant to association and other contracts with universities and other academic institutions. The NICPB participates in national and international research and development through national, European and international programmes and agreements and application for research and development grants. The NICPB introduces its work regularly in other research and degree-granting institutions, in specialised literature, scientific conferences and public media.

Vision: NICPB is an integrated and effective scientific institution, where all employees recognise their responsibilities and possibilities in achieving the goals of the Institute. NICPB`s reputation is based on high-level research, initiation of innovative topics and development of competence and scientific infrastructure at national and also international level. The PhD work, carried out at the Institute, provides adequate qualification for performing as a principal investigator.
